Resources for Increasing Bicycling

An interesting site to find resources concerning increasing cycle traffic. To quote:

“……more and more the tourism sector has recognized the remarkable potential of cycling. Several factors are responsible for the growth of cycle tourism around the world:

  • Cycling tourists are often in a higher income bracket than most tourists
  • Tourists recognize the bike more and more as a vehicle which is good for their health
  • Tourists realize the enjoyment of slow and contemplative travel
  • Accommodation vendors recognize the profit potential of single-night guests
  • Plenty of Maps and Routes programs have been launched
  • Bike friendly transit agencies are enjoying an increase in ridership
  • The bike industry has recognized the profit potential of cycling travelers and is offering quality touring equipment
  • Cycling athletes are choosing to travel by bike to attractive places where they can train.

So cycle tourism is steadily changing from a curious activity by a few cycling activists to a mainstream opportunity for recreation. With the increasing demand for good cycling infrastructure, high quality equipment, and suitable accommodation, a sleeping market has been slowly awakening over the last 10-15 years.”
